Let the Record Show – the crate-dug interview series in which artists discuss their favorite songs of all time as the tracks spin on vinyl – continues its fourth season today with the man legally known as Josh Young aka DJ/producer YehMe2.
Among his selections, the former Flosstradamus member selects a crateful of Chicago classics, from Kanye West club bangers to classic house staples like Cajmere’s “Percolator.” He reveals tales behind the early days of A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold Records, reminiscing on collaborating with his real life sibling Kid Sister, and delves into why juke music never caught on nationwide. He also offers commentary on the debut Flosstradamus single, “Big Bills”, featuring Caroline Polachek, pulling the curtain back on the origins of his former duo with Curt Cameruci. Peppering in offbeat selections from Dr. Octagon and Billy Bragg, Josh selects a well-rounded, eclectic list of cuts for this episode of Let the Record Show.
YehMe2’s appearance on Let the Record Show marks the 38th episode in the series and the third episode of Season 4. Forthcoming episodes of season 4 will include Dudley Perkins aka Declaime and Grammy award-winning producer for Chance The Rapper Cam O’bi, among others.
